Play! Catan: Oil Springs
Tuesday, June 5, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Back by popular demand! Celebrate World Environment Day by trying out the brand-new scenario for Settlers of Catan:"Catan: Oil Springs." New resources and new rules put a spin on the classic board game, Settlers of Catan (by Klaus Teuber).
Will you create tremendous growth and exacerbate climate change, destroying the island of Catan, in the name of winning? Can you win without ruining the island? Players will debate these issues while enjoying spirited competition.
Before you play, learn how the game was developed and play the scenario with co-designers Erik Assadourian and Ty Hansen. After a round of Settlers, head into the museum's Earth Lab to understand the science of climate change that underlies the game.
Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended. Please bring a game board (if you have one available) to the program.
